Had a pool to myself for a few days, so I took a few videos of myself underwater. I couldn’t disturb anyone though, so the machinery was off, and I didn’t make any splashing noises on the surface at all.
Gotten around to viewing them tonight, and to my utter surprise, you can hear my stomach churning and bubbling away through the whole thing!!!
This is a pretty great discovery for me, as I’ve been trying to get a better, more efficient recording all year. I guess the water acts as a giant contact microphone, and the walls of the pool as an amplifier?
I’m definitly going to have to make some time to get some dedicated recordings in this kind of environment. I’m hoping a bath tub would be enough, as long as I can I can minimise every other noise source in the room.
My dream is to produce a series of 10-60 minute soundscapes in stereo, with very little background noise. Each soundtrack would be focused around a certain food I guess. :P Piecing together other recordings is all good, but I prefer the real thing!
